Evangel’s home men’s soccer contest with Williams Baptist, scheduled for Tuesday (Sept. 15) evening, has been canceled.
“This decision was made out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our student-athletes,” stated Heart of America Athletic Conference Commissioner Lori Thomas. “The conference and teams are adhering to the outlined guidelines in the Heart Promise.”
The decision comes at the request of Evangel Athletics after contact tracing and cautionary quarantine procedures were enacted. Delaying this game will allow student-athletes to return to the field of play in the safest manner possible by allowing the appropriate time for practice and physical reconditioning.
